Based on the analysis we used to rank every NFL Prospect as well as leveraging the NFL Draft Machine we present our rookie class rankings. All teams are ranked on rookie class impact in the upcoming NFL season. These rankings are a combination of overall impact, weighted impact from the top players and average impact of all players. Though the Cincinnati Bengals do not rank as the best drafting team for the third consecutive year, it is still notable to see that they rank in the top five.
Below, we show each team's Class Ranking, Power Ranking and Projected Wins Added. Class Rankings sort by a combination of total value added and average value added to each roster. New Power Rankings add drafted players to each roster to instantly re-simulate Power Rankings and compare to Previous Power Rankings (Prev. PR includes Free Agency). Projected Wins Added looks at players in the draft who can start for the new team to determine impact based on PM's rookie ratings (read more here). If team has not drafted a player who can start, it will not have any Proj. Wins Added.
